SHN vs JNG Dream11 Prediction: Five games into the season and Shanghai Shenhua looked like a team heading towards the upward trajectories. More than the three wins, it was their overall gameplay, the intensity on the pitch that was sending all the good vibes about the team towards the fans. But it proved to be a false indicator, it seems now, as the team remains winless in six league games, losing its place in the top-four. But the good start to the season means, they may have lost advantage, they are not out of the championship rounds reckoning yet, with only an inferior goal-difference keeping them away from top-four. It's worth noting that only three rounds remain, including this match, and Shanghai know they have to win this game to remain relevant this season.
Jiangsu Suning will not be short of pressing reasons to win this game. They may be second on the points table and looked set to qualify for the championship rounds, but the newly-found holes at the back is a big concern for the team management.
Shanghai Shenhua vs Jiangsu Suning: Chinese Super League
Date & Time: 05:05 PM (IST), September 21, Monday
Venue: Dalian Pro Soccer Academy Base
Shanghai Shenhua: Failed to win in six league games. They slipped out of the top-four in Group A. Scoring goals is a big problem for the team. They are the worst offensive team in their group having scored only 12 times in 11 rounds. (DLDDD)
Jiangsu Suning: Played an absolute humdinger of a match as they drew 3-3 at home against GuangzhouR&F. But it was a big disappointment nonetheless, as Jiangsu had a 3-1 lead at the hour mark. Jiangsu are second in their group with 19 points from 11 matches. (DWWDD)

Shanghai Shenhua Team News
Injury Report, Unavailability:
Kim SHIN-Wook remains out of consideration due to an injury. He has been out of the team since last month due to an ankle injury.
Qian Jiegei will also miss this game due to suspension reasons. He was sent off in the last match.
Former AC Milan player Stephen El Shaarawy hasn't reported back at Shanghai after the international break. He is not with the team at the moment.
Shanghai stole an unlikely point in the last game courtesy of Bi Jinhao‘s equaliser just four points from the 90th minute. That prestigious goal may force ever-ponderous head coach Choi Kang-hee to hand Jinhao a start in this game. He can make a difference in this SHN vs JNG Dream11 Team Prediction.
Yu Hanchao and Feng Xiaoting also impressed after coming off the bench in the second match.
In addition, Shanghai are likely to hand new signing Fidel Martinez a debut in this match.
SHN Playing 11 (probables):
Jiangsu Suning Team News
Injury Report, Unavailability:
Yang Xiaoting will sit out yet another game for Suning due to a nagging injury. He is addressing the knee issue these days.
Zhang Cheng is another player on Suning's injury list and will not be available for selection against Shanghai. He is out with an ankle injury.
After conceding two late goals in the last game, it's apparently clear that defence remains the biggest problem for Jiangsu at the moment. Zhou Yun didn't have the best of the match and could lose his place in th starting 11.
Midfielders Ji Xiang and Zhang Lingfeng both are options from the bench.
JNG Playing 11 (probables):
GK: Z Cheng
DEF: A Abdugheni, Miranda, S Mbia
MID: P Xie, W Xi, S Shilin, C Yunding
FW: A Teixeira (VC), Eder-Martins (C), G Moreno
Eder Martins: On current form, he is one of the best players in the Chinese Super League. The 33-year-old Italian assisted one and scored once in the last game. He has six goals, three assists and two man-of-the-match performances in the last nine games.
Alex Teixeira: The former Shakhtar Donetsk star has been a star performer for Jiangsu Suning. His skills on the ball make him a nightmare for the defenders. He can score goals and boasts an elite vision.
X-factors, differential picks
Ivan Santini: The 31-year-old Croatian will be crucial for the home team's chances in this match. He is their leading goal scorer this season with five goals.
Cao Yunding: Should start on the right side of the midfield. His crossing will be key here for the home team.
